Higher education officials in Colorado and Washington State, both of which voted last week to legalize marijuana use, say that the legal changes won't affect campus pot bans, USA Today reported. Officials cite federal laws that require colleges receiving federal funds to ban drug use on campus, and say that they have no plans to change their rules. "If someone thinks they are going to walk around campus smoking a joint, it's not going to happen," said a University of Washington spokesman. "While it may be legal two blocks off campus, it will be illegal under federal law, so it will be illegal on campus."
